London: Remington & Co., 1881. First edition. viii, 146pp: with H. Petherick's illustrations in line, enhanced throughout with watercolour by the original young owner: not meticulously, but enlivening the tale: forget clean pages, here there are smudges and soilings. Her grandfather's 1881 gift inscription is on the verso of the front endpaper, with a Plymouth bookseller's miniature stamp. Recently refurbished, with new cloth inner hinges for the original brown endpapers. Now firm, in the original binding of green/blue pictorial cloth, lllustrated in gilt, silver and black: front bright, but with some rubbing or soiling. Very scarce. [A sequel followed - Among the Woblins]. VG-.
